0 Reviews
Among the blue-white shadows and graceful curves of freshly fallen snow, the first rains of spring, and the quiet of an early summer morning, Beston brings the reader into an inescapable alliance with the natural world. He translates the philosophy of the Maine farmer into terms as applicable in Manhattan as on the Kennebec. Northern Farm is among the great classics of American nature writing.
